When you hear the name Jersey Shore, most people think of those annoying reality stars from MTV with blown out hair and duck lips. But in all reality, The Jersey Shore is a real place and a rather beautiful one at that. Seaside Heights, New Jersey aka The Jersey Shore made for the new home of Cheap Thrills motorcycle show and swap meet.
Walter Gemeinhardt of Kickstart Cycle Supply really out did himself this year with having five motorcycle shows, a van show, a chopper pool party, swap meet and vendor village, food trucks, along with twenty plus bands that played throughout the weekend in three different venues all walking distance from each other and the beach. Oh and let's not forget there was some mini bike mayhem brought to you by the Flat Out Friday Crew and Jive Turkey Racing.
